In the Heart of River Oaks, Historical Landmark Hits the Market

NEARLY 95 YEARS ago, River Oaks Elementary was built on the corner of Kirby and San Felipe. Across the street, the very same year, a brick Colonial Revival-style home was built by the Russell Brown Company and purchased by Raymond and Connie Garrison.

Now a historical landmark, 3014 San Felipe Street has hit the market, listed by Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty for a cool $1.3 million. The original charm remains, but a more open floor plan and added square footage — bringing the property to more than 3,000 square feet — means this four-bedroom home feels up-to-date and ready for a family.

The kitchen and adjacent family room are warm and inviting, with built-in shelving and a wet bar. The primary bedroom is a nice size, with an attached marble-laden bathroom and three sets of French doors that overlook the pool in the backyard. Also outside there's a two-story guest house, complete with a kitchen and living room downstairs and a bedroom and bathroom above.

Similar to other companies we adapted to the virtual world as a way of living and to continue doing business. Since we are a company where our greatest value is personal relationships virtual meetings and visits were very important. It was difficult to adapt at first but we found ways to make this successful.
